Tried this out today.  Am I doing something horribly wrong?  My character is extremely fragile.  On my second T10 rift, I got one- or two-shotted by elites so many times my equipment broke, and I was only half way through the rift.  Granted, I'm not very good at playing this build yet.  And the equipment on my follower sucks so he's not healing me much yet.  But still...

 

I did make sure I have the Together as One rune selected.  I'm running rubies instead of diamonds, which I can change.  But the way you make it sound, nothing in a T10 rift is a serious threat, and I'm dying *constantly*.  Sometimes I die so fast I don't even know what hit me. huh.png

It might be a lack of proper gear, the guide does assume you have farmed the character out. You can definitely swap jewelry and gems around a bit for more toughness, try Band of Might and a few Diamonds in the armor sockets.

I don't understand why f/r is the rings to choose. We only proc half of the f/r combo, so why not Coe and band of night as the best choice? It seems blatantly obvious as the best setup.

Furious Charge and Ancient Spear fulfill the generator and spender requirements for Focus and Restraint, so you're getting the whole proc.

Quite correct. To add to that, Band of Might is considered too safe of an option in high end Softcore leaderboard pushes, where people prefer glass cannon and fishing for optimal rifts. I can only recommend Band of Might in hardcore, or if you are not trying for competitive ladder.

I think BoW is overkill for TX. The build doesn't have any problems dealing damage, it's getting one-shotted by a bad affix. Swapping out the rings for a Band of Might and Avarice Band have actually improved my average clear time, even though I was only dying once every third rift or so. I don't have to be anywhere near as careful about placement and I don't have to loop around to pick up gold to fuel my speed procs.

Sorry, what's "BoW"?  And did you mean changing the rings improved your average clear time, rather than "increased" it?

I also found myself dying very frequently and was pretty frustrated and unimpressed with the build, at least for us old, slow-witted players who may not have millisecond-scale reflexes, or sometimes even second-scale.

 

As suggested in this thread, I swapped out my Focus/Restraint for Ring of Might and Unity, and found I had become completely invincible and wasn't killing stuff perceptibly slower. I didn't miss the damage at all. After that, the build seems sweet and I appreciate it.

Bastions of Will, and thanks, I edited it.

 Ah, right.  I knew BoW was familiar, but I get so used to saying F&R that I forgot the real name.  Thanks.  When I get back around to playing with this build, I'm going to try this.

Since Boon of the hoarder is useless in a Greater Rift, what would be the best alternative gem to use?

Taeguk ?

For people having issues with fragility, having mostly ancient gear made a HUGE difference.  Currently progressing through mid 50's GRifts without the GRift mod because I'm too lazy to swap gems between rift types.  Plus, also helps if you have target ADD.  This is not a tanker, don't stand there and spank at things and expect to be ok.

      A new Beta Build has hit test servers yesterday. You can resurrect in Greater Rift runs instantly and the time is now directly added to the completion timer.
      Instant GR Resurrection
      On live, every death in Greater Rifts increases your respawn timer by 5 seconds (up to a maximum of 30 seconds). Patch 2.6.0 changes things around a little, and the time is now directly added to your Greater Rift completion time.

      Screenshot is a courtesy of redditor Oagoz
      New Necromancer Legendary Items
      Many new Legendary affixes have been added to the game for Necromancers and you can find them here (again, screenshots have been mady by Oagoz).
      Instant resurrection in Greater Rifts, Necromancer Class Sets & more.
      Patch 2.6.0 Build 45183
      The testing primarily focuses now on Necromancer Class Sets, because they've just been added to Adventure Mode. Below are full patch notes with latest changes highlighted in red.
